Presented by Battersea Foundation
This year the tour will feature homes & Christ & Grace Episcopal Church, in the Walnut Hill neighborhood, developed in the early-mid 1900s. There is a big emphasis on Art, Architecture and Music. These large, beautiful homes will all be beautifully decorated inside and out for the holiday season, some with multiple trees. You will encounter reenactors in period dress and there will be music throughout the afternoon. Tickets on the day of the tour will be available at Christ & Grace Church at 1545 S. Sycamore St. for $25. Additionally, you you may visit the City’s museums: Blandford Church with 15 exquisite Tiffany windows, Centre Hill, The Exchange Building and Farmers Bank downtown. A special treat will be the Trees of Christmas exhibit at Petersburg Area Art League, 30 or more creatively decorated trees and you get to judge which are the best! Battersea will welcome you with a bonfire for roasting hot dogs or s’mores, a food truck, beer, wine, music and tours of the house where you will love the large train display in the west pavilion. This tour is a perfect way to celebrate all of the season’s traditions with friends; don’t miss it!
